One-size-does-not-fit-all…

For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through the endurance taught in the Scriptures and the encouragement they provide we might have hope. Romans

Comments, thoughts and reflections welcome.

Isaiah 28:23-29

  Give ear, and hear my voice; give attention, and hear my speech.

Does he who plows for sowing plow continually? Does he continually open and harrow his ground?

  When he has leveled its surface, does he not scatter dill, sow cumin, and put in wheat in rows and barley in its proper place, and emmer as the border?

For he is rightly instructed; his God teaches him.

Dill is not threshed with a threshing sledge, nor is a cart wheel rolled over cumin, but dill is beaten out with a stick, and cumin with a rod.

Does one crush grain for bread? No, he does not thresh it forever; when he drives his cart wheel over it with his horses, he does not crush it.

This also comes from the LORD of hosts; he is wonderful in counsel and excellent in wisdom.

There is a process to be followed.  There are time limits.

“…  Does he who plows for sowing plow continually?…”

There are specific methods.

“…  does he not scatter dill, sow cumin, and put in wheat in rows …”

There are item sensitive manners of processing.

“…but dill is beaten out with a stick, and cumin with a rod. …”

There is a knowledge and will that comes from God.

“… he is rightly instructed; his God teaches him. …”

Humanity is unique, individual in needs and characteristics.  One size does not fit all and one way does not reach all.  As we temper and form our ways when planting and harvesting different crops meant for different purposes, so then when we prepare, plant and harvest for the kingdom of God in spirit, we seek His counsel and His wisdom.

“…  This also comes from the LORD of hosts; he is wonderful in counsel and excellent in wisdom. …”

As we walk through our days, we seek His counsel, His wisdom.  We share as is appropriate to the individual crossing our path.  One-size-does-not-fit-all.
